The paper is devoted to possibilities of improving education in chemistry by development of research work. The main stages of the project work of students are analyzed. The ways of contributing to the gradual mastery of research methods in chemistry during the teaching of students are considered. The authors show some search actions which are necessary to practice, performing experiments, analyzing the obtained results, and their re-examination if needed. Students can form learning outcomes using the theoretical principles during the experiment. It was emphasized that in order to train the competitive professionals, it is necessary to organize self-study research work during the learning course.
